Unfortunately, workers currently aren’t “free to work for any firm.” 1 in 5 workers are banned from working for other companies in the same industry by non compete clauses.

Originally intended to protect corporate secrets, now it mostly limits the mobility of service workers.
Bernie’s Corporate Accountability and Democracy plan will ban non-compete clauses.

It will also protect workers by banning mandatory arbitration clauses & unilateral modification clauses. #corporateaccountability
Mandatory arb. clauses are bad for workers across the board, but consider what it means for historically marginalized ppl.

Your job has a pattern of racial/gender discrimination? No class action for you! No criminal liability!

It limits accountability for them at your expense
58% of women are bound by mandatory arbitration clauses.

In 1992, only two percent of the total workforce was bound.

In 2000, it was 25%.

Today, it’s a whopping 55%, including 2/3rds of those making under $15 an hour— largely women & black/brown ppl.
