Backbone and jQuery do different jobs, they complement each other quite well.

For the next year you'd have a much better chance of getting a Django or RoR job than a Meteor job. Meteors still the new kid on the block so it's still in a process of picking up traction. Beyond the next year, who knows...anything could happen. As long as you understand the underlying principles of web development, picking up new technology should be trivial.

I don't care so much about the job market, but I want to know what would give me a wider range of apps I can put together quickly, given I invest X hrs to learn the technology.
