I'm currently travelling South America and am hoping to extend my trip and do central and North America too but I have been working things out and I've realised my budget might not stretch to North America.
Ideally I don't want to hang around in central for a month or something so I was wandering is it possible to get monthly or short term jobs for backpackers in the states?
How would I go about sorting these?
Jobs can be anything: waiting on tables, being a porter, working in hostels, whatever, I'm not fussy.
Thanks for any ideas all

You'll need a J1 visa ("exchange program") to get any sort of temporary remunerated job in the United States, and to get a J1 visa you'll need a sponsor.
It's quite difficult to organise sponsorship from anywhere other than home. Also, you'd need to pay a hefty sponsor fee and visa processing fee.
Much easier to go to Canada as you can organise it directly with the government, but it says they're not accepting any more applications for the "2016 season". You could get a sponsor, but you have to pay their fees.
