Wage slaves don't act like slaves - they literally are slaves. They do whatever they're told and punished if they don't. The only difference between the two is the legal entitlement.
We don't have legally-sanctioned slavery anymore because wage slavery benefits the wealthy much more than legally-sanctioned slavery does. It's much cheaper to "rent" a slave than it is to own, feed and house them.
