But focusing too much on the net change in jobs can be misleading. It gives the impression that a job is like a widget — it's something that gets made in a factory somewhere, and that we hope exists forever.<p>That's not how it works. Even in good economic times ,new jobs are constantly being created and old jobs are constantly being destroyed.
