have you considered the difference between doing whats required at work, and doing more to advance?
i understand your perspective although for money what happens outside of work, will not impact your immediate paycheck, and it would not be fair for you to expect it too. Your situation is challenging, and since you're in college i would move forward knowing the money will eventually be there if you make it through the now
You're young. Be patient and do the right things.
hang in there, you are not alone
