I once read that California non-compete laws come from the gold rush era, and yet I was not able to find any more information about the subject.

It would be interesting to understand what historical circumstances led California to have these non-compete laws which many of the other US states don't have. (and why those states don't have such laws)

Thank you in advance for any answer whatsoever.

  • Are there any particular non-compete laws you're referring to? Also history.SE might be a good place for this question. – Justin Lardinois Jan 8 '18 at 9:39
