Oh, really?
我看到这样一句:
With the pay raise of 50%, she is still determined to leave this company.
这里也出现了pay raise字样,但是和你说的pay raise的用法是不一样的。
嗯,我也不知道究竟有没有“pay raise”表示加薪的说法。

小新,出现一下,来说说你的看法吧。

pay raise = salary increase = pay rise = increase in wages
作为一个名词性的短语表示加薪,同日语中的「昇給」。

The boss didn't argee to pay  raise to me, so I was up in arms  about it.
↑不过名词性短语用在这里显然是不合适的,可以考虑该成:

The boss didn't agree to raise my salary, so I was up in arms  about it.
