CLEVELAND (AP) - Things are looking up for many of the approximately 60 young Lithuanians and Russians stranded in Cleveland when they arrived seeking summer jobs.
Many of them have made progress getting jobs and housing.
However, at least 11 still need work.
That word came on Wednesday from Ingrida Bublys, the Lithuanian honorary general consul in Cleveland. She has helped with the job and housing search.
The job seekers, most in their late teens and early 20s, became stranded last week when work commitments didn't develop. Civic and ethnic groups came to their aid.
