In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
Stop the Staples merger! Vulture capitalists will drive up debt, sell off assets and eventually bankrupt this profitable company while laying off thousands of workers. How many times have we heard this story before? This is only one case and legislation must be enacted to prevent another Toys R Us disaster. In the meantime, reject this merger as anticompetitive and just plain wrong.
