Australia McDonalds Bullying In The Workplace

I am suffering with bullying at McDonalds. Only it is the managers that are bullying me so I feel so stuck that I cannot do anything about it! They abuse their power make you clean up their mess while they stand their watching you making you feel under so much pressure, intimidating you constantly to the point where you just want to walk out of the store and never return.
I just need the money, I've only worked here for 9 months ,I've had severe Anxiety since I was a child and this place is draining me. Picking at every last little part of me that is sane. One day it was 20 minutes after I had finished my shift and this manager that doesn't seem to like me at all asked me to mop all the floors before I could clock off I said yeah thats fine, got it done straight away everything was spotless, came back to her asked if there was anything else I needed to do before I leave, she was making coffee in McCafe and threw the coffee powder all over the floor right in front of me, laughed and then asked me to clean that up also.
Crew trainers of crew members that have been there for years boss the new crew around make them do their work that they get given by managers and managers don't even care! its all corrupt and I'm so over it... there's no one to tell because you'll get bullied even more! I come home crying most nights, it's sickening.
Im ready to leave but its just hard to face them, and finding a new job is next to impossible these days. Managers have their favourites who they like the best they will put them on the best jobs they won't have to clean up or do anything besides what they've been put on but the rest have to do everything!
Something needs to be done.
