Re: Non-compete contract

The fact of the matter is those kinds of contracts were in place and it
was more than just the prime talent had to sign them.  I found it
interesting since it was a CBS contract and CBS imposed this restrictive
non-compete on the talent even after telling the union during contract
negotations that CBS did not require non-competes.  Don't sign it and you
work for scale or not at all...in the real world there are kids to feed,
cloth and educate.
