Probably.  This is true of a lot of languages, of course.

Anyway, ruby is popular right now and more people are getting interested
in it daily (different companies are as well), it it can't hurt to
know, and more jobs will probably come up with the demand and use.

At the same time, if you don't think you'll be working in a field that
uses Ruby much, find what languages are used the most and make them the
priority.  If you have interest in ruby anyway, use it when you have
time or if you enjoy it -- it could turn into something else down the
line rthat's more lucrative.
