Which is more important a job you like or job that makes money?

I am a recent college graduate and I was offered an entry level job in my major(Sociology) but it only pays about 10.78. I also was offered a job making 12.00 but it was as a restaurant manager, but is not what I went to school for. What's more important, getting more money or working in my major. Now I'm leaning toward the restaurant!
