In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
Please deny the Staples' merger as it will surely result in even larger layoffs from the Staples group which would be picked dry by mindless greed and further reduce competition in that business field. As it stands now, Staples will get as 'lean' as it needs to get in order to compete -- no need to tear the company completely apart, thereby preserving many more jobs. Thank you.
