"Right to work" is a euphemism for "anti-union." It means that in
Florida, you cannot have a "closed shop" in which individuals may not work
unless they are members of the applicable labor union.

This does not mean that non-compete agreements are not enforced in
Florida. They are, with some exceptions (for example, overly broad and
unreasonable restrictions.) It has nothing to do with non-compete

Florida is a very pro-management state. It is also called an "at-will"
work state, which means that in the absence of a contract otherwise, and
provided that there is no discrimination based on membership in protected
classes of persons, in general employees can be fired for no reason at any
