I'm living on a visa in the USA that allows me to study and live here legally, but not work.
I'm sorted in regards to college and living, but I'd like some money to spend on myself personally. What are my options in regards to getting some, preferably legally?
The people I've known who don't have work visas had to do it under the table. One worked for a family friend's restaurant, another at a shooting range. You'd probably have better luck finding some small business that pays cash from other people in your situation in your area.
>i cant legally work
>how do i work legally?
apply for a work visa. you wont get one. probably. or you can just do it illegally. work at a restaurant or other business where tehy hire dirty foreigners off the books. do some maid service once a week, go to the gigs section of craigslist and see what odd jobs you can pick up.
or find the dumb people who dont know how to internet on campus. say you will download them up to ten movies for just 10 bucks. full TV shows are 10 as well.
This is not qualified legal advice, so double check it - but I think that a student visa allows you up to a certain number of hours (15? 20?) of part time work while you're in school.
