LL0268 – Jurgis Su Seserimis Gyveno Vilniuje Jurgis Lived With His Sisters In Vilnius

 

Hi there, I’m Jack and I’m Gintarė and welcome back to Lithuanian Out Loud where we offer the world the Lithuanian language.

 

According to the 2010 online article, "From Lithuania, a View of Austerity’s Costs," the global recession has hit Lithuanians very hard.

 

Pensioners have had their benefits cut and are swamping soup kitchens. Thousands have lost their jobs and Lithuania, which already had a high suicide rate has seen a dramatic increase in the number of people taking their own lives.  In addition, the emigration rate of Lithuanians is at the highest percentage since Lithuania joined the European Union in 2004.
