Next week the US Supreme Court hears oral arguments in a case brought by an employee of a temporary agency at an Amazon Fulfillment center. Apparently after finishing their 12-hour shifts, and punching off the clock, employees were required to wait up to 25 minutes to go through a security screening to check they hadn't stolen anything. I find this story outrageous. If your employer forces you to do something that takes a not-inconsiderable amount of time, they ought to pay you for your time. This isn't like washing your hands or putting on safety boots (tasks that can be done in a couple of minutes). What is really surprising, to me, is that the Obama administration is siding with the temporary agency in this case, and against the workers. I spent most of my business career believing that Unions were an overall negative to business and the economy. That opinion is changing.
