    "In the US, the last ten years represents the only decade since the Great Depression when there have been zero net jobs added to the economy"

    No more jobs have been created than have been lost.

    Some jobs were created and some jobs were destroyed. They balanced out, so there was no overall increase in the number of employed people.
