You don't have to be lucky to have a job, just willing.
There are about 6M job openings primarily in transportation, food and professional services, a number that has grown for a few years now and roughly the same number as people currently unemployed, a number greatly exceeding the number of people unemployed for over 6 months. Additionally the rate of people quitting their jobs across the US has increased.
You think with the availability of unemployment income, placement help, free schooling and tax funded on-the-job training, those numbers would have equalized by now. The problem I find, as I know many owners in these businesses starving for workers, is that they are competing with government benefits or their applicants can't even be bothered to show up to work not high or drunk.
