A court ruling in Arkansas means some workers will end up with a chunk of back pay for time spent in the dressing rooms.

FOX's Dave Anthony explains:

Gerber owes more than $3 million to workers at its Fort Smith, Arkansas, after the State Supreme Court ruled the company must pay those employees for time they spend dressing and undressing into uniforms and protective gear, which takes about four hours each week.

Gerber had argued the union collectively bargained that compensation away, at the Fort Smith plant that makes a variety of baby foods, but Arkansas's highest court said the state's minimum wage act requires the workers to be paid.

Hormel lost a similar case in March at Wisconsin's supreme court.
