Can my employer force me to sign a non compete agreement, after being employed for almost 6 years?

I am a dog groomer. I work for commission. I have been with my employer for 5 years, 10 months. They have come up with a new " confidentiality, non-competition, non-solicitation and ownership rights agreement". They are trying to force all the employees to sign it. They are threatening to withhold our pay if we don't. There are several things in the agreement that the other employees and I don't agree with and we don't want to sign it.

You don’t have to sign the new agreement. The company could fire you if you don’t. But they cannot refuse to pay you for past work. If they do that contact the State of Michigan wage and hour agency in Lansing.
