German Town Promotes Sleeping on the Job. So when can we expect to see this system go into effect here in the U.S.?

They seem to be phasing this in for Airline Security personnel first...

A local health insurance company gave them courses on napping.

How do they give a "course" on napping anyway?

Instructor: "Now in order to nap properly, you must first lay down and... HEY! Wake up people! I'm trying to teach you how to nap! There will be no sleeping in my class do you hear me? DO YOU HEAR ME!?!?"

With the sleeping course in mind are you awarded marks on style and dribble ? and do u loose marks for waking early

a gel mousepad makes an excellent pillow, and remember, if awakened, always say "amen".

It seems like they're really just giving them an extra 20 minute break after lunch. To know how big of a deal that is, I think we'd really have to know what sort of break system they typically use in Germany, i.e. is it 8 hour days, with a 30 min lunch and two 15-minute breaks, like it is here, for hourly wage earners? In Germany, is the hourly vs. salary paradigm even relevant? I have no idea. Anyone?
