Or perhaps he suffers from the delusion that wealth and expensive toys aren't the only measure of a life's value?
Let me out first!
This ^. I picked up an S4 mini for just over £100 all in. It does everything I need, runs everything and its phone sized. There's zero chance that I will ever buy a brand new phone again especially since I didn't have to tie myself to a contract to get it.
And I'd be prepared to accept that, if the facts fall that way. I just don't believe that competing with China on who can care less about environmental controls is the way to go (which is what the original post seemed to be suggesting).
We were talking about environmental controls holding America back
Assuming a race to the bottom is the optimum route.
I think requiring companies to pay a 50% salary when a non-compete is in effect is brilliant as they can dictate for whom you can work (and, as such, the ability earn a comparable salary).
I totally agree. Its pretty scary the power they seem to have in this.
In the UK a non compete (or any restrictive covenant) will generally be held invalid by a court unless they can prove it is reasonable and necessary to protect legitimate business interests. This means they can't prevent you from carrying out your chosen profession, can't have blanket statements such as 'not allowed to work for any competitor' and must only last as long as is required to protect those interests and no longer. It pretty much means you can't have one-size-fits all non-competes and you can really only prevent people from poaching clients if they leave.
What that means is that, unless you are an exec with access to trade secrets, a non-compete is pretty much useless and unenforceable.

Its 'Anarchy Lite' - all the great flavour of anarchy, with no loss of privelage
Funny how AC Uber supporters are always out in force.
Uber sell taxi services - they are a taxi company. Full stop. They find the customer and they set the price. If it was a marketplace then there would be a negotiation involved.
But then you known that.
I agree totally. I'm pretty sure the only reason there is any question about what Uber is, is because Uber are paying lots of money to try and keep the question open..
If its Europe of Tories, give me Europe!
I thought it was either eternal vigilance or tree fiddy.
