Why do all jobs require experience ?

I have tried to get a job for long time and many places say no experience required but when I get interview they say they won’t hire me because I don’t have experience. I have only been able to get jobs through employment agencies. 

Update:

I am just trying to get a entry level job it seems odd they want experience for basic jobs.

Update 2:

I have always wanted to work at one of favorite stores or fast food restaurants but they don’t hire me 

Update 3:

Advice?

    Employers want people who know what they're doing and be sure they'll show up to work. Employment agencies are a good start and help you get experience. I started as a temp in college, mainly housekeeping, light factory assembly and delivering phone books.

    It's an excuse.  They just don't want you in particular, the real reason is most likely bias or favoritism
