Get Paid to Get Dressed

A German policeman convinced judges that the 15 minutes he spends getting dressed each day amount to overtime. He will be reimbursed via extra vacation or extra pay. This officer is not alone: 120 other German police officers are filing the same grievance. I just have a few questions:

(1) Why does it take him 15 minutes to get dressed? What do police officers in Germany wear? Astronaut gear?
(2) Can I get paid to get dressed? Would I have to show up at work in my pajamas, and then get dressed after punching the clock?
(3) How does this apply to exotic dancers, who normally get paid to undress?

  1. Don't mess with the German police, they must be wearing some awesome gear under their uniforms.
