Default Who pays minor league players?

I always wondered, are all minor league players under contract to the big league team, or just the guys on the 40 man roster? Who pays them? Since a good number of minor league teams are owned by someone other than the big league ownership, is there some sort of operating agreement between the teams to lease the players or something like that? Just wondering, since it seems like a lot of teams have the freedom to enter into their own agreements with towns, vendors, etc, but really have no control over what players are placed on their teams.
