Question Do IMGs get paid while doing residency?

Don non-American citizens IMGs get paid while doing their medical residency? If so, is it under a J1 or a H1b visa?

but if your not practicing here after residency, then might as well just rent and save money. by the time you go home to your country, you'll have a million or two as a starter.
