Spanish to English translations [Non-PRO] / Mexican Regionalisms
Spanish term or phrase:chamba & chambeador
please tell me the meaning of these 2 words in Eng.
Are they common outside of Mexico? (in other LA countries?)
Explanation: this would be an American street slang version; my wife is from Colombia and uses these terms in the same context. For example, I have a full-time job. However, if we need extra money she'll ask me whether or not a certain "gig" has come through. A person who's always coming up with small gigs for extra money, day job or no, is referred (sometimes positively, sometimes not) as a "hustler".
