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.
