I urge the FTC to stop the Staples merger. If this merger goes through, investors in a private equity fund will have more power to reduce competition, close stores, and lay off workers. The merger of Toy R Us last year is an illustration of this process. Please protect competition, keep stores from closing and Americans working. Thank you.
