Frustrated at work

It’s 1st July 2021, the time is 6:27 am and I find myself in a trotro as usual going back to the same place that is tormenting my life and conscience. Why do some people who are fortunate to be blessed financially and have open firms treat some of their workers as slaves? I was a worried person for months because I just couldn’t find a job to support my family. One dawn, favor shined on me through a friend who called to tell me about a job that urgently needed someone.
Dave, I was so grateful to God and couldn’t wait to submit my documents in the morning. Fast forward I returned from the place to give my mom and little sister the news that I got the job and oh Dave, the praises and thanksgiving we showered on God was something else.
Now 2 weeks into the job, I found out the CEO is very autocratic, manipulative and rude which has caused frequent staff turnover. His wife, on the other hand smiles in the face but is poisonous. Dave, I have never found peace of mind or joy since I joined the firm. The CEO has no regards or respect towards me and has said it to my face countless times that I don’t add anything and the firm won’t lose in my absence.
He has asked of my use in the firm countless times. I joined the firm to have financial freedom but I end up borrowing from my mom again to pay for fare and breakfast because my boss will pay some staff on time and leave me and other colleagues out to be paid late because he doesn’t see why we deserve to take the Ghc800 salary. After my first month, I finally got paid on the 10th of the following month after several pleas from the account department. Dave, I’m a lady in my mid twenties, the first child of my parents and 2nd class holder from UCC. I’m very hard working and I just want to make money through the right means. Is that too much to ask?
I work form Monday to Saturday, 7:30 am to 6:30 pm every day. I cry within me anytime I join the trotro to work and each hour spent there, feels like I’m in a prison. I’m gradually drifting deep into depression and I’m scared for the worst. I don’t know who else to talk to. My mom says I should quit for my sanity but I also need this job to support the family and I don’t have any option to rely on.
I manage to spend 10 cedis everyday on both fare and breakfast, drink a lot of water and take my second meal when I get home because I need enough to support home and loved ones. I’m trying to cope yet it’s unbearable to be in such a situation. I really want to quit but I don’t have any better option, so I’m caught up in between quitting or staying. Please advise me on what to do if you have been in the same situation. Thank you.
