Are jobs in science really decreasing, and if so, is it still a good idea to go into them if you're dedicated enough?

I've heard conflicting statements about this. Some people have told me that pure science fields (not engineering, just research etc) are getting harder to find jobs in. Is this true? #science #biology #jobs #research #chemistry...
