Is it good consideration to give up your right to abandon a contract?


Performing an existing contract by one party is no consideration for a new promise by the other party.
**Cant get more money to do something you were already required to do.

Giving up the right to abandon a contract is not good consideration.


The promise to pay for work being done is not binding for want of consideration
