Does anyone have proof at 1 public sector job eliminates 3 private sector jobs?

I have heard this many times over the past year or so. Can anyone prove that each public sector job eliminates three private sector jobs? Because the converse seems to suggest that eliminating one public sector job creates three private sector jobs.

    No, if that were the case, all we would have to do is like you said, eliminate public sector jobs.

    I don't see how anyone can know that. So if we fire one cop, three people will be hired? In what field?

    I can understand the argument that the cost of one public sector job, comes at the EXPENSE of three taxpayers but that is totally different.

    I haven't heard that correlation for either case.
