Assunto:  hush money
 
Mensagem:    Other context would be someone being underpaid, but expecting somehow to earn

the pay he/she deserves.    (would be, say a  paliative, it´s not what he wants but enough

to keep him quiet...at least for a while).

     You context, I think, would of a "compensatory" kind, but a proper word eludes me

right now.

It is something along those lines... palliative is for sure another good choice for a more formal word.



See you!
