    •  Because tech jobs can be outsourced (2+ / 0-)

      Tech workers have been effectively neutered by the relentless off-shore outsourcing in our industry, and by the high numbers of unemployed tech workers. Organizing at most companies would be a laugh because the company could easily hire replacement workers (there's no tradition of solidarity in the tech field and so many tech workers have lost their jobs that replacements would be easy to find), or they contract it out to a company in India at about half the price.
