My first question is: Why, in God's name, do you love this job?
It sounds like you're getting screwed from every possible angle. I'd
second Tommy Green's suggestions, and further urge you to fully document
everything that's going on. At the very least, it could help you
remember all the details when you're explaining the situation to future
interviewers. In the meantime, you've got 1.5 months to do some serious
looking around. Hook up with your local head hunters and see if you can
find another opportunity BEFORE you leave your current position. From
your description, I'd say turnabout is fair play. Any company that puts
its workers through that kind of abuse deserves to get screwed in
return!

At least, that's MHO...
