I don’t know the way things are now out here you kind of have to do
freelance or you don’t get to work in the industry. And I don’t know where
else to go to get work but online platforms.

OK so stop with the accusations and read all the help pages on this site. Start here: https://community.upwork.com/t5/New-to-Upwork/Getting-Started-on-Upwork/m-p/264214#M2460

And then once you have grasped the basics start applying for jobs.

I already did both of those things. I mean obviously that’s why I’m here. I
read those pages and applied for jobs and still am unclear why I would have
money taken out of my account when I’m the one that should be receiving the
payment.

Are you even trying to listen to what they're telling you? NO money is being taken. It's only being transferred to your bank. You ARE the one recieveing payment.

It says “earnings will be withdrawn to your primary payment method“
How can you withdraw things to something?
If I’m being paid why is anything being withdrawn?
If you’re not interested in helping me understand this why are you even
responding?
And if it’s just to be insulting and condescending to me whatever that’s
not helpful it’s just toxic.

The earnings are being withdrawn from UpWork and being transerred to your primary payment method, i.e the bank you listed. Don't let the word 'withdraw' confuse you. Nothing's being taken away. I am interested in helping but it doesn't seem like you're interested in listening. (Also, I hate condescedning people and never wish to be one.)

I mean why do they use the word withdraw then if it’s not a withdrawal?

Because it technically is a withdrawl. Money is being withdrawn from your Upwork account and being deposited to your bank. So there's no money lost, only $2 for the withdrawl fee.

I don’t have any money in an up work account and I don’t understand why
they would have to take my money away to pay me. That seems scammy and A
means for me to make a mistake for them to capitalize off of.

Check your bank statements. I'm sure you'll find that UpWork hasn't taken any money. They only charge you if you purchase connects or sign up for a Freelancer Plus membership.
