Scott Sheriff succinctly identifies the key issue at hand (although I'm not sure the math is correct)...

"...lets say all went really well, and after it was all said and done the net profit (20%) was 1,200 dollars. Your cut would be $120."

A $6000 job does not yield $6000 profit. By taking 20% of the total budget, you are asking for a cut of what I pay my vendors (grip rental, PA's, etc), which in most cases are long standing relationships that I spent a lot of time cultivating before you came along. It's not atypical for me to have paid them out of my own pocket in the past regardless of the profitability or cash flow of the particular job they worked on, just to preserve that relationship.

There is definitely value in someone who can deliver sales, but in this business it has to be a two way street. The sales person's fortune has to rise and fall with the profitability of each job.
