This goes both ways: If it's not paid well enough, don't take the job. This will force the company to either pay enough or go out of business. You're not entitled to companies nurturing you.

You're entitled to the right to pick and choose your employer, though. You're entitled to organize yourself with others.

That's so weird. It's almost like our thoughts and prayers aren't doing a damn thing.

The blog article references Peterson and tries to make him look like an ass by claiming he exaggerates. I'm really not sure about it. In German you would call the part which uses "public incitement hatred" a Gummiparagraph. It could mean anything. That's the problem.

Peterson just knows how that plays out because of the politics game his faculty is playing. You can listen up to the point he makes if it's interesting to you on his Youtube channel. I think he has valid points and if you start to listen into his lectures, you'll learn that it's not founded on thin air but rather more on his studies of authoritarian regimes and his psychology studies. 

Quite interesting! He has a strange canadian accent, but his lectures are very worthwhile.

"virtue signaling" seems to focus on people doing what they think is right.

That's not the context I have heard the term in.

Via Wikipedia we get a third definition which makes the most sense, IMHO.

Virtue signalling is the conspicuous expression of moral values by an individual done primarily with the intent of enhancing that person's standing within a social group. The term was first used in signalling theory, to describe any behavior that could be used to signal virtue—especially piety among the religious.[1] Since 2015, the term has become more commonly used as a pejorative characterization by commentators to criticize what they regard as the platitudinous, empty, or superficial support of certain political views, and also used within groups to criticize their own members for valuing outward appearance over substantive action.

[..] as many feminist and gender issues are..

I disagree.

I think not enough people are repelled by the openly anti-science stance of many gender study academics. I'm not only talking about bat-shit crazy US professors, I talk about Austrian professors too.

Addendum:

virtue signaling: acting like you might have values because it's opportunistic.

Best example is Justin Trudeau. He tries to overshine his destructive behavior in terms of free speech and environment with his support for homosexuals (not a bad thing) and the more obscure parts of gender politics (very bad thing).

Making it a crime to critizise religions (Islam) or to use fantasy pronouns is absurd.

Unser Eindruck war, dass in den Gender Studies oft überkomplizierte Wörter verwendet werden und eine starke moralische Voreingenommenheit besteht, die Männlichkeit oft als Wurzel allen Übels betrachtet. Und dass es Beiträge mit dieser Wortwahl und Voreingenommenheit ziemlich leicht haben. Also sagte ich, zunächst nur im Scherz: Lass uns einfach einen Artikel schreiben und argumentieren, dass Penisse eigentlich gar nicht existieren, aber trotzdem die Ursache vieler Probleme sind. Peter sagte: ja, zum Beispiel des Klimawandels.
