So, you are making some broad assumptions that aren't exactly accurate.
The performance of a player determines his pay on his next contract, which is the case for tens of millions to hundreds of millions of workers worldwide.
It's the case with teachers for example. Teachers have tenure -- they can get away with working as little as possible. However, that closes some options down the line, so most don't do that.
