Today, Representative Mike Garcia (CA-25) introduced H.R. 8755, The Restoring Workers’ Rights Act of 2022, to the U.S. House of Representatives. The Restoring Workers’ Rights Act will foster economic competition and level the playing field for workers, resulting in better opportunities and higher wages by banning non-compete agreements for lower to middle income workers.

R Street Institute President Eli Lehrer issued the following statement in support of the bill:

“Nearly all non-compete agreements are an assault on the freedom of workers and employers alike. The passage of this bill would be a major free-market triumph.”
