That's a very good idea... as long as there's enough equity (there usually isn't). For 75k/year, I want at least 10%, and even better, co-founder status. While 75k and 1% is in the founders' interest, it certainly isn't in the employees'.

You can never make claims like that before the fact. Every company, group of founders, group of investors, and opportunity is different. I'm certain there's a startup out there who you would take 75k and 1% from because you really believed the business would change the world and exit for Facebook money. You'd be crazy not to.
