I'm trying to get a temp job around Christmas time, probably at a assembly line. I'm a student with no skill yet, and especially because I'm trying to get a job for two weeks, a general labor seems to be only option.

So these are my question:

1. as the title said, which US city has the most factories? Not by percentage, and it doesn't have to be just one city. It can be multiple. Just in general, what U.S. cities are deemed to have the most factories? When I say cities, I'm not talking about the metropolis, but smaller cities like Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Memphis... so on and on.

2. This is out of topic, but do factories hire people for just two weeks? It's so hard to find a job on internet. Most of the jobs are in outskirt, where public transportation doesn't go. I'm a proud New Yorker who doesn't have a driver license. But I cannot stay in New York for this Christmas vacation, so I really need to find somewhere to stay. I'm not going to stay in New England, but still east of Michigan (preferrably Ohio and east), and Tennessee and north. I don't have a plan to travel further.


So yes, please share your idea and help me

By shear stats / total number at one point it was LA.

But that may have changed, since manufacturing jobs and enterprises have really gone bye bye from CA since 1990. It's actually quite tragic.

LA is the biggest manufacturing center and shipping port in the nation. Doesn't help the environment, but new cap and trade laws will fix that up right.

Im not followin the OPs plan. I dont think you will be able to find a factory or any other job thats going to want to hire you for 2 weeks. Why you arent staying in NY and do you plan to return after Christmas. Without a drivers liscense are you going to travel by train, live in motels and walk to this job in a strange city.

Im not getting it so I think its me. If you could be more detailed about what you want to accomplish I might be able to be more help
