I believe the answer is:

temporise

Here is my best explanation:

'equivocate' is the definition.

'casual worker with zero extra money' is the wordplay.
'casual worker' becomes 'temp' (I've seen this before).
'with' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'zero' becomes 'o'.
'extra money' becomes 'rise'.
'temp'+'o'+'rise'='TEMPORISE'

'as' is the link.
