    Layoffs fall, but lay off that celebration for now

    The number of workers laid off in Singapore fell in the third quarter, reversing an earlier trend. Strangely, this could be a cause for concern. After all, if companies are holding on to workers simply because they can't find replacements, and not because these workers are productive, they are headed for trouble. Down the road, the bubble could burst, bringing more pain in its wake.
