work credit issues

I'm the newbie at my job and work my butt off. Everytime I do something someone else takes the credit for it and when I tell my managers it was actually me they tell me not to lie or excuses excuses. I don't understand. Why is everyone taking credit for everything I do? I mean I know they have to take credit for someone elses work because all they ever do is stand around, but why is it literally everyone and what am I supposed to do about it? I've never encountered this situation in my work places before. Could it be because I am the only english speaking white cook and the rest are all spanish speaking mexicans? I hate to think that, but I've never had this problem until now and it's very difficult to do my job in the first place when I am the only one that speaks english and can barely communicate with everyone else. I am always having to get my manager to translate for me. I hope it's not that, but that is the only difference I can see in this new job compared with my old ones. Someone please help!

awww im really sorry to hear that, i think it might be worth you looking for another job as if they carry on tkaing the credit you will be the one that loses the job for it. Yes they will more than likely realise after that it was you that done all the hard work. I know in this current economic climate it is really hard to get a job, but it is easier when you have a job!!

Thanks! I am looking into starting my own restaurant, but that takes a lot of time, effort, and money. I also am looking into something I can do online because the truth is I have looked in my area and nothing is available right now. Any ideas or tips on what I can do for those two would be appreciated.
