WHY BUSINESS OWNERS PUSH NON-COMPETES

Anyone who reads this blog knows my bias.

I hate non-competes in any shape or form! They unreasonably restrict the little guy’s right to earn a living and feed his/her family. Further, as experienced by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, businesses are shooting themselves in the foot by requiring these restrictive agreements. You see…business innovation and growth require a competent, knowledgeable, but most importantly an experienced work force. If an employee has experience but cannot change jobs and better himself/herself by using that experience…innovation and growth suffer. This is the reason Massachusetts is losing high tech business to California because the Golden State does not enforce non-competes and Massachusetts does!

Want to know why your boss or employer wants you to sign the non-compete? Read Ray Silverstein’s (MSNBC) article to find out what it going on in the mind of the bad guys!
