another round of layoffs at staples this week. it is logical to think that sp will begin some butchering at essendant soon as well. then they can fully merge the 2 companies into one entity.

it seems we will continue to bend over backwards for mason. i was hoping they would pull some of their biz and give this sh*thole co a wake up call. they have mason and barely any other clients. wrong way to do business.
