And while waiting for approval, sysco is already making us food deliveries. Seems to be just a formality. This is one merger I could do without. I use them both.

Parent companies shuffle smaller companies around like cards to see how close they can come to a monopoly....less competition=.Higher prices=more profit........................America will never be invaded or be in another civil war,because while the Russian insurgents and the so-called western "nationalists" pick apart the Ukraine......America (or North America including Canada I should say) has already been bought,lock,stock and barrel....sold to the highest bidder.....This link is just the list of North American companies owned by 1 Parent company,who own hundreds of other companies worldwide....There are dozens more parent companies, including China,India,Arabia,Germany...whoevers'

got boat loads of cash...........http://www.mitsubish...affiliates.html

Corporations in general are sitting on a shit ton of cash after the last few years of increased productivity/profitability on the backs of the overworked employees who weren't laid off  during the economic crisis.

 

They have to do something with it and it obviously isn't going to be hiring new employees....
