  •  And I remember many to be politically conservative (9+ / 0-)

    I used to work in IT.  Things may have changed in the last decade, but many my old colleagues were quite conservative, very pro-business, and identified with the 1% (they hoped to get there someday off of stock options).  Hence they were often hostile to unions ("it allows slackers to get the same pay increases as very productive workers like me").

    They also wanted  "the hand of government out of their pockets', so were against government aid (except handouts to their company, of course).
