"The company promises $95 million to $105 million in investments, 40 to 60 jobs paying an average of $44,000 a year and an emphasis on sustainability. It says the automated operation will use far less water and land and a fraction of the herbicides normally sprayed for an operation of this scale.

If you get rid of your tv then all of their money donations are useless.:)
Again...yes, all employees sign it but it applies only as far as owning/operating a like establishment. NOT against working in one. The crux is that one might take processes and procedures learned at Jimmy John's and use that information to financially harm Jimmy John's by unfairly competing against them by utilizing direct knowledge of how they operate. It has nothing to do with workers. Should you choose to transition from worker to store owner in a similar environment; you have to wait two years to do so within a 3 mile radius. It's not that limiting. But to slam a local employer w/o doing the homework is irresponsible. Christ, have The Weekly's lawyers review the contract and advise!
I've read the contract. It states that within "x" period of time - 2 years - former employee will not invest, partner with or own/operate a store which produces/sells submarine sandwiches. AND it stipulates that the non compete only applies within a three mile radius of a Jimmy Johns.
It says nothing about workers.
This has already been through the court systems...Palmer & Cay v. Marsh & McLennan Companies, Can't enforce it. You can not hinder someones right to gainful employment. You can be enjoined against stealing clients and/or trade secrets.
Tucson lost that chance when AZ tried to push the ban gays shopping issue. Ca. companies and Silicon Valley in particular (Elon Musk is a an alumnus of SV) are quite liberal and open-minded in their world, as am I , being from Santa Cruz. Dead issue now, the guns thing and the "Aryanzona, it's a dry hate," thing will be an impediment to attracting many business and investors.
