A misguided corporate takeover [Letter]

I'm neither an employee nor a stockholder in Sysco or U.S. Food Service, but this combination will not benefit either company or its employees ("Sysco to buy US Foods, former Columbia-based company, for $3.5 billion," Dec. 9).

Two companies calling on the same stores and restaurants doesn't help. Are they going to have two trucks delivering items, two separate warehouses operating with the same merchandise?

There would have to be layoffs, and no competition coupled with layoffs is not a good match. If one company has been offering a better price than the other that will certainly end that. I'm surprised no agency has tried to stop this takeover.

Frank F. Braunstein, Pikesville
