I figure that for everyone who is employed, they create enough additional demand (which would otherwise not exist) for someone else to be employed (or at least close to it). Assuming that there is ample potential demand, and that there is ample money available for consumers to covert that potential demand into demand realized at the cash register, then I can't really come up with a reason why there couldn't be enough jobs for everyone who desires a job to have one.
There was a time when Japan had an unemployment rate of 1-2%, and during WW2 the unemployment rate in the US dropped to as low as 1.2%. That's pretty darned close to enough jobs for everyone who wants one.
