This is actually for my friend..next month he's gonna be in Boston for a project about dating abuse..but he needs to earn money while he's there.. he's gonna be there for 2 weeks or so. How can he find daily jobs that pay remotely?

What does "pay remotely" mean to you? Pay at the end of the working day?

Boston is not a cheap city to live in!

Does your friend have a place to stay? Does the "project" provide a place to stay or is the money he makes needed to pay for the bed and his food?

Parking can be very expensive! Will your friend be driving a car in Boston?

Some people commute by local train (called the T) to Boston for the work but live in smaller and cheaper towns. Cheaper towns available between Boston and R.I. state line.

Back in another century when I was younger and wanted extra money I worked my vacations for a temp service called Manpower. Back then work was in factories or outside manual labor type work with a check at the end of the day.

It might be better to work longer hours with overtime and maybe a second job in the city you/he presently live and save up that money. Or borrow money from mommy and daddy.

Come back with more information.

I guess if you are really desperate for money you could pick up a few Airtasker jobs. Though being only a two week trip, is there really no way for your friend to save the money to fund the trip?
