In the infield, a pop up has a natural tendency to move back towards the infield, happens down either line and in the area around the plate. So to compensate for the ball moving towards the infield, the catchers glove is positioned so it can move with the ball, rather than stabbing at it.

Pitchers will like the dirt on the ball because it will be able to move more however the opposing team and Umpires will find this an unfair advantage which is the reason in which baseballs will usually be tossed out of play to the umpire but it doesn't always happen in the event of a batted ball hitting the infield dirt.
The home plate umpire position does not pay more or less than the umpires in the field. In the Major Leagues, umpires are paid off of their tenure and performance in the league.
