I hate my job, but love money
I've always done the 9 to 5 thing, and it's worked out okay so far. Most of the jobs I've had have been fine. Nothing to write home about, but they paid the bills. The job I have now though is absolutely awful. I work at a dying nonprofit with almost no staff and my boss is a monster. I really care about the organization's mission, but my boss makes my working conditions almost unbearable. First of all, because we have no staff I have to do my job and ten more that I'm honestly just not qualified for. When that shows, my boss blames me for my incompetence. She's thrown me under the bus on more than one occasion in front of the Board of Directors for things that she's directly told me to do that haven't worked the way she wanted. Most recently, she made me and the only other female employee in our office agree to work out with a personal trainer and get on a scale to weigh ourselves in front of all of our male coworkers. It was humiliating and degrading (and probably illegal). She told me that if I don't agree to her "wellness regime" that she'll let me go. What should I do?
