How can companies with a huge amount of debt and losing money every year pay such high TC?

For example, Lyft and Uber aren't making a dime, but have some of the highest base salaries and stock options plans in the field. The higher TC is getting more engineers to go there, but it's a double edged sword where it just pushes them farther and farther back from profitability.

It's technically not their money AND they get to live off of it. Not a bad deal tbh lol.
