Is being an English teacher a good job to do in China?

I was just wondering if I got the qualifications to become an English teacher in China and went there to teach if I would be dissapointed by the standard of living that I was now living by. Is being an English teacher considered a good job in China? Would my income be higher or lower than the average Chinese citizen? Would life be harder for me? How welcoming is the Chinese society to foreigners working in their country? Would I face a lot of prejudice or discrimination? Are English teachers in high demand in China? Would I easily be able to get a job working there?
