Industry observers said it is a sign that more layoffs are certain. Chrysler, whose dealers are reportedly stuck with a 95-day slock of new cas, has threatened to close one of its six assembly plants--and throw 5,000 Detroit workers oft the job--unless sales rebound. After sales figures came in showing the industry '28 per cent below a year ago and Chrysler announced its cost-cutting programs, many shareholders couldn't wait to unload their auto stocks.
