    This is huge: yesterday, the FTC finalized a rule banning noncompete agreements for every American worker. That means that the person working the register at a Wendy's can switch to the fry-trap at McD's for an extra $0.25/hour, without their boss suing them:

    @pluralistic It is not just the apples-to-apples limitation in non-competes, but how widely they are written.

    Years ago, I was asked to sign a non-compete as a software engineer. The language was so broad that I technically couldn’t have gone to work at McD’s because they used cash registers, which were computers, so obviously competing!

    Fortunately, I was in a position to decline signing, although the CEO accused me of being disloyal.
