I am 100% in favor of getting rid of non-competition agreements. They even exist in other professions than the tech industry. I remember that a friend had to sign a non-competion agreement when she went to work at a beauty salon. She could not work for another salon or open a salon within a certain milage radius which was a substantial number at the time. It may have 15 miles at the time. And this was over 20 years ago!!!! Eventually she did not work for them anymore. She did not have any legal recourse to break the agreement since she signed it. She was not able to find work close to home.
Re: Non-competition agreement in another profession
Yes. Another good example outside high tech industry.
