Amendment One on this fall's Georgia ballot is bad for Georgians

Amendment One, which appears on the general election ballot this fall in Georgia, purports to make Georgia more competitive by allowing companies to create "reasonable competitive agreements."  The truth is far different: what the actual amendment does is create a system whereby employers can fire employees and prevent those employees from working in the state or elsewhere for up to two years.  In other states, studies have shown that such laws REDUCE innovation and business opportunities. 

Therefore, we urge all Georgia voters to vote NO on Amendment One and preserve the rights of workers in our state.  Click here for an informative column by the AJC's Jay Bookman, where he explains just how the amendment is bad for Georgia and how it will make us less competitive.
