RUSSIAN OIL WORKERS SEEK EMPLOYMENT ABROAD
American oil workers discouraged by bleak employment opportunities in the U.S. petroleum industry face increasing competition abroad from Russians seeking "a living wage." Moscow's Zagrantrud (Foreign Labor) firm believes "millions" of Russian skilled and unskilled workers in many occupations will try to find jobs in other countries. The Russian enterprise says it is selecting a group of construction workers to build a refinery in Colombia. Kuwait also wants Russian construction personnel.
