Apple Recruiting Its Retail Employees To Fix Maps

Anyone else think this is a major waste of time and money? I think Apple's money would be better spent hiring former Google Maps employees.

Apple is piloting a program to tap into its vast number of retail store employees to help improve the company's new Maps app for iOS 6. Details on the initiative remain unclear, but multiple sources have indicated that participating stores will dedicate 40 hours of staff time per week, distributed among a number of employees, to manually examine Apple's mapping data in their areas and submit corrections and improvements.
