    The meaning of ペーペー pe pe

    僕なんか駆け出しのみそっかすのペーペー
    うちの人だったらぺーぺーだから給料も安くて

    I seriously have no idea what the term means, since it doesn't seem like a simile or metaphor... I translated it as "underling" but I am really not sure

    By the way this is from Shibatora

    You're right! But, it's a demeaning way to call an underling. The equivalent in English could be, "you dogs" or "you scumbags." Depending on context. ^^

    Here's a page explaining the definition and etymology.
