I have given him $3,000 from my savings but honestly do not want to see my savings depleted because he isn't willing to do what it takes to get income.

THIS is very pertinent information.

If you have already funded him once, it is unlikely another cash infusion will help anything.

As far as his needed income: $10 an hour should net him around $1200 a month. If he already has work atire, $10/hour should be enough, and most temp agencies should be able to get him something at that rate. Anything over that would make things a little less tight.
