If you add up all the time that Amazon warehouse worker Neal Heimbach spends waiting in the security line at the company’s Breinigsville, Pennsylvania, site, it equals thousands of minutes each year, Heimbach’s attorney told the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, in a case likely to determine whether Pennsylvania employees should be compensated for time spent going through on-site security screenings.

“Can it really be said that waiting in a security line in a hot warehouse after a long shift is not as valuable as the time of an executive,” Heimbach’s attorney, Pete Winebrake of Winebrake & Santillo, told the justices in Heimbach v. Amazon.com, arguing that even if his client only waits in line for a few minutes a day, it should still be compensated under the Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act.
