moonlighter

a person who is registered as unemployed and draws unemployment benefit but who nonetheless takes paid work ‘on the side’ to supplement his or her income. For example, an out-of-work painter may decorate a friend's house, being paid a sum of money for undertaking the job. This and other BLACK ECONOMY transactions are not officially recorded and hence are not included in a country‘s NATIONAL INCOME ACCOUNTS. See TAX EVASION.
