According to Baseball America's Kyle Glaser, the Padres will continue to pay their minor league players, as the Athletics have made negative headlines for announcing that they will stop paying theirs.  Additionally, Glaser reports that the Padres are the only team in Major League Baseball that have committed to paying their minor leaguers through August AND no furloughs or layoffs for their baseball employees through October.  Well done Padres!
