5. Jeff Bezos doesn't seem like a union guy.

Neither does Bill Gates.

Of course, it's a shift from manufacturing to white collar jobs, that's a big part of it. And the younger workers I know don't see the benefits of unions, not to mention that they've heard scare stories their whole lives.

And tech jobs also pay well. Those people aren't being left behind right now (well, not till their first round of layoffs, as they get aged out). They honestly don't see the benefits, and I think tend to think of unions in terms of not just Boeing, but lots of blue collar jobs that used to define Seattle, longshoremen, for example.
