Larger organizations take more time to move. The backwards-incompatibility
is unfortunate but necessary. As more and more large, well-known packages,
i.e., Django, migrate to 3.x, so will users. However, as Wai Yip mentioned,
if you're not motivated to move (everything "works as intended"), then you

Remember SCons <http://scons.org>? That was invented using 1.5 and stayed
that way until recently. They were backporting 2.x patches to their 1.x
system for the longest time.

With regards to the OP, at Google, we're still using 2.x, however there are
efforts internally that are moving forward with 3.x and preparing the
shift. I even wrote recently
that even the Google APIs Client Library is now available for Python 3
