You need desirable skills & experience. What education & training do you have beyond a high school diploma, experience? How much demand is there for this currently?
E.g. construction jobs have been booming, but only for trained, experienced specialists: finish carpenters, HVAC technicians, welders with advanced/specialized welding skills, plumbers, electricians, etc.
Uneducated, untrained, unskilled, inexperienced people are a major glut on such job markets, and not worth much of anything to an employer.
