Why should a company offer a market rate salary and equity if the equity is valued at 0? Should companies just not offer equity in that case? Seems like a waste if it is not valued at all.

Or the company could do the very hard and legally annoying work of convincing candidates that the equity won't be destroyed at a moment's notice.
