work free(lance) or die

New Employer wants to hire me part-time and will forbid me from working other part-time jobs in same professional field in my city. I don't know yet if I'll be "freelance" or "on staff", but the (low) quantity of work and (low) pay equals freelance status in my mind, but freelancers should be able to cobble together many jobs in their field and city, right? How do I get around New Employer's so-called "noncompete" agreement? I want to work for this (prestigious) company but cannot quit my other jobs yet. What is my bargaining position?
