Interested in Language
Is this a valid, existing expression? I could not find it in Internet, so have I "invented" something?
My supposed meaning of "to be in someone's pay" is to be informally / illegally / secrectly remunerated by someone in order to act in accordance with that someone's wishes.
"I know him and I know it is against his principles, but he will do it anyway. My guess is, he is in the pay of the corporation".
