This is an error of appointment. The words "you" and "me" are not interchangeable, as you can clearly see in the phrase "I would like to see my wages paid to you." as opposed to "I would like to see my wages paid to me."

The correct quotation is "He hath eaten me out of house and home", and it comes from Act II of Shakespeare's Henry IV, Part 2.
