You are misunderstanding what a right is.
For a job to be a “right” it would mean that someone deserves it regardless of their skills or the benefit to their employer. It would mean that if an employer had a position open that needed someone highly skilled (say a nuclear engineer) but the only unemployed people to hire were high school dropouts with a resume that consisted of being a fast food burger flipper, those unemployed people would have a “right” to that job.
It would also mean that unemployed people got first crack at any job opening, instead of being open to anyone who wished to apply.
Which is clearly stupid.
Even if you specify that having a “right” to a job means that you only have a right to a job that you are qualified for, then that means that because of my “right to a job” that I should never be turned down for a job as long as I meet the minimum qualifications for the position whether the employer NEEDS a new employee or whether or not they have another applicant the next day who is even better suited for the position.
It would also likely mean that you couldn’t be fired, because that job was yours because it was a “right” not because you were qualified or a good employee.
In your version of events, my right to that job would trump the needs of the employer.
Except that’s how socialism works, not a free market. In a free market I don’t have a right to a job and an employer is not forced to give me one. It’s a transaction, my skills need to be needed by an employer and I need to be someone that the employer knows will work with their current employees and help them to make money.
You have a right to do whatever you wish, including feeding your family and taking care of them (which is not just a right, but a moral obligation), as long as your actions don’t intrude on someone else’s rights. That includes the rights of an employer or business to fire or not hire you, the rights of a store owner to not be stolen from, etc.
It sucks when you don’t have a job, I empathize greatly with those that don’t. I’ve had that experience many times in the past, but I never had a right to a job. I had to hunt for jobs for months and months at times.
So no, you do not have a right to a job and phrasing your question that way shows your clear far left wing bias by trying to turn this into a discussion that isn’t about “rights” but about trying to demonize by claiming that my stance on freedom is about trying to starve poor people.
You have a right to look for a job, to request a job, to hunt for a job. You don’t have a right to a particular job (whether you are qualified or not for that job) and no employer has an obligation, legal or otherwise, to give you a job. The only reason an employer really hires someone is if hiring that person will benefit them as well.
Sorry, this is ranty and long and I don’t think I expressed myself well…I just woke up.
