As a manager, there is no time restriction on the hours you may work in a giving week.  you are a salaried employee that can work 100 hours or 39 hours a week and get the same pay.  Retain managers work more hours and receive the least amount of pay in any industry.  I suggest locating a new job or demanding more compensation -whether that is in the form of commission based on the sotres revenue or larger salary.  You need to stand your ground if you have options.
