An individual employed as a tool pusher by Midway Oilfield Constructors, Inc.—which does business as Midway Energy Services—claims in a proposed class action lawsuit that the company failed to pay him and similarly situated workers for off-the-clock work. The plaintiff claims he and other tool pushers were not compensated for “significant” time spent performing pre-trip inspections of work vehicles and for spending roughly 30 minutes each morning picking up and later dropping off other employees. The plaintiff asserts he works approximately three unpaid hours for the defendant each day.
