Non-compete demanded signed or terminated-after signing benefits and salary are cut.

After ten years of employment my employer demanded that I sign a non-compete contract or I would be terminated in one week. Two months after signing the non-compete employees were forced to pay monthly health insurance premiums. (roughly $4,000.00 per year) Six months later my salary was cut by $5,000.00 per year. Is this non-compete valid? I'am currently considering a positon with a direct competitor.

Additional thought

It is the new employer that should know about the non-compete as the new employer would be the one to defend against it.
