Having a job is not a reason to miss a court appearance. Many people lose their jobs after a court jailed them, sentences them to prison, etc. A court might be more sympathetic in reinstating bond if there was a good reason why the last court appearance was missed.
Conducting a bond hearing is best done by an experienced criminal defense attorney. The defendant should find an attorney and tell that attorney, in confidence, every reason why he missed the court appearance. A skilled lawyer making a good argument in front of the court is the best chance to have his bond reinstated, released from jail, and also to hopefully craft a defense to the accusations and/or negotiate a reasonable plea bargain to resolve the case with the least amount of punishment.
What you do is you either pay off his fines for him or post a bond which would most likely be for the same amount as his fines. The best thing would be to hire an attorney who can argue with the judge why he gets jail credit for $50/day towards his unpaid fines. I have done this numerous times. Good luck.
