I’m all for seeing a local economy adding jobs to those available out there. But it would be nice if it wasn’t to fix something that shouldn’t have been broken in the first place.

Seems that Google Maps‘ misleading mistakes have created a large enough issue that Google was forced to spend some of its cash reserves on temp workers to fix the problem.

With any luck, these new jobs added will lead to permanent work for many of the temp workers. One can only hope, anyway. But the one outcome that I think we can expect from all of this is Google Maps receiving a badly needed fix to the data being referenced.
