Terri Gerstein Calls for End to Noncompete Agreements

Former Fellow Terri Gerstein (’95) authored an article for the Economic Policy Institute’s Working Economics, reporting how rampant use of noncompete agreements contributes to the wage stagnation of recent decades (“Welcome Developments on Limiting Noncompete Agreements,” Nov. 7). The recently introduced Workforce Mobility Act of 2019, Terri anticipated, will address “concerns about economic liberty and entrepreneurialism as well as those focused on job quality and workers’ rights.”
