Today, roughly 20 percent of all workers—approximately 30 million Americans—are covered by a non-compete agreement. The use of non-competes hinders worker mobility, reduces wage growth, and stifles entrepreneurship and innovation, with a disproportionately harmful effect on historically marginalized workers. Join the Economic Innovation Group (EIG) for a virtual conversation about the latest with non-compete reform and the bold bipartisan effort underway in Congress to limit the use of non-competes and boost worker mobility and entrepreneurship.
Hear from U.S. Senators Chris Murphy (D-CT) and Todd Young (R-IN) in conversation with John Lettieri, President and CEO of EIG, about the Workforce Mobility Act, recently reintroduced bipartisan legislation to limit the use of non-compete agreements that negatively impact American workers. The conversation will be followed by a live panel discussion with guest speakers Rachel Arnow-Richman (University of Florida Levin College of Law), Najah Farley (National Employment Law Project), and Eli Lehrer (R Street Institute) moderated by Jordan Weissmann (Slate).
