Not sure I understand what you're saying. The screw job isn't necessarily always voluntary, but there's always a job no one deeply wants to do but someone HAS to fill it. Correct?
Even the free market possesses jobs that someone people don't necessarily want but have to do, because that's the niche they fill. Regardless of government.

Let me try to clarify. If two people are going to make a trade (product for product, product for money, money for labor), each side must value what the other is offering more than what they are giving up - as otherwise they will reject the trade.
My point is that when government is involved, no matter the type, someone will be screwed over - but this is not the case on the free market.
Yes, but that's any and everywhere.

Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch."

I like it

I'd say always
Get a small enough group or an oddly collimated populace of responsible people, and it works.
So what about on a huge land mass encompassing over 300,000,000 who are forced to participate?
