What is the incentive structure for the henchmen of Bond villains?

Not sure if people have noticed, but many aspects of Bond stories are implausible. I wondering if in the original books or any of the movies the issue of why anyone would become the henchmen of a villain is addressed? They're treated as disposable and couldn't have much of a personal life living in the evil lair. Are they essentially slaves? Cultishly committed to the cause? Promised some big pay-off after the diabolical plans reach fruition?
