Can a non-compete agreement be enforced if your employer stops providing benefits as outlined in your offer letter?

I am looking to change employers due to the fact that my current employer has stopped paying my per-diem or paying for me to go home as promised in my offer of employment. In the offer I was to be paid a daily per-diem and be provided with travel home after 49 consecutive days. The employer states they can no longer afford to pay for this. I have not been home since for 7 months and want to change jobs. My non-compete agreement states I will not work for a competitor for 3 years after employment. I want to make sure that I will not violate my end after the employer changed the benefits outlined.
