I think economic and patriarchal are functionally the same thing; if you have no economic security you are very, very aware that someone can tell you what to do.

The whole point of patriarchal norms is to guarantee that no one tells you what to do who "doesn't have the right"; that's older men with more power. (Most of the Trump racist support is driven by a great screaming need to be certain the pain of having to think of a black man as able to tell them what to do goes away.) Women can't have management jobs because it violates patriarchal norms. Race hierarchies are a way to make sure the bottom tier white males have someone to exercise power on with impunity, and so on. High-tech is objectionable because it doesn't work on seniority; the whole "boss baby" thing wouldn't have any cultural resonance at all if it wasn't a real thing and a real social fear. I don't think it's any more complicated than that.
