Rich New Yorkers Paying People To Stand In COVID-19 Testing Lines For Them

Rich New Yorkers are paying people to hold their place in line for COVID-19 tests, according to reports.

The New York Post says these ‘line-sitters’ get hired through a freelance site called TaskRabbit – charging anywhere from $25 to $80 per hour. That’s a lot of money when testing lines can take more than 3 hours to get through.

Many New Yorkers are rushing to get tests complete before leaving for their holiday travel plans.

Would you be willing to stand in line for someone else for a COVID test? Aren’t they just endangering their own health? Have you been tested? What was the experience like?
