Explanation:
Ce n'est pas les "jobs" en soi qui manquent, mais les embauchés ou postulants qui ne se sont pas présentés ou qui ont désisté.

"Emplois payés sans travailler" or maybe "Ghost job"


Explanation:
These are jobs where you get paid (and even receive benefits) but don't do the work, where you don't even have to show up. (Sounds a bit like politicians, or here in Canada, like Senators, doesn't it?...)

"McCall Audit Finds Lax Oversight Results in No-show Jobs at Adirondack Correctional Facility
"(...) We found ten Adirondack Correctional Facility employees who earned a full-time salary and got medical and pension benefits, but rarely worked,""
http://www.google.com/search?q=cache:www.osc.state.ny.us/div...

"Politicians got paid at no-show jobs

Miami-Dade County Public Schools paid local politicians for jobs in which they didn't always have to show up."
http://www.miafla.com/111599a.html

I cannot find an equivalent in French. The following may or may not be the same thing, as it means a job that doesn't really exist:

"GHOST-JOB TRIAL ENDS IN AIDE'S CONVICTION

A federal jury in Chicago deliberated little more than four hours Tuesday before convicting Gregory Swan,
a low-level political consultant, in ghost-payrolling and kickback schemes. "
http://www.freerepublic.com/forum/a267542.htm

"Les détournements peuvent prendre de multiples formes : la collusion entre un employeur et un employé, qui s'entendent pour créer un emploi fantôme : l'employé ne travaille pas, et les deux partagent la subvention;"
http://www.hrdc-drhc.gc.ca/arb/publications/research/subsidi...

That's all I can find. I hope it helps you anyway.
