Medical assistant in Bay Area?

Hello, I am thinking of going to school to become a Medical Asssistant. I am wondering if anybody could give me an outlook about the job. How much they make an hour/year. I have a BA, but in a complitely different field and from another country. I have seen a lot of vacancies on line, but is it a good career? I really don't feel like waisting another year, but feel a need to study here. Thank you in advance.
