Should I encourage him to keep working this job?

My boyfriend is 20 years old and just recently obtained a job at a company called Amarr. Basically, Amarr makes garage doors and that's all there is really to it. My boyfriend started last night and he was put on the line and started working. There are a lot of problems with this job already though. First, his shift supervisor doesn't even stay the whole shift, they leave and go home for the night. Let you remind you this is 3rd shift and they basically get auto clocked out of work, they don't have to be there to do it. Next, his team leader does not do any work. The team leader just sits at his desk playing on facebook all day long. The rest of the people in his team are extremely nice to him, but he is treated horribly by the team leader and the team leader constantly threatens to fire him if he doesn't work fast enough. Another problem with this job is that is strains him physically. By the time he got home he was pale in the face and could barely stand. He said at one point he could barely breath and had to stand there for a second while getting treated badly by the team leader. Next problem, he doesn't get paid more for overtime. He is already only going paid $10 an hour to work in a factory on 3rd shift, but he gets paid the same if he has to stay longer. I want to tell him he can do it, but this job just looks like trouble. If he makes the smallest mistake he is fired and I know he would be completely distraught if it happened. Not only that, but this job is going to destroy him physically and I just don't know if I can watch him go through this. I told him we can find an alternative and there are more jobs out there, but for some reason he just doesn't want to believe me. He keeps telling me he wants to go back and not just give up the first day. Its hard to tell him to go back though when I have been told by multiple people that have worked at Amarr that it DOES NOT GET ANY BETTER! What do I do? What do I tell him? What can I do for him? Please help me... I want to help him make the best decision possible and I want to be supportive in the best way I can for him. I am just at a lost though... :(

One out of two things is going to happen, is either he falls sick or his body system will adjust. If he doesn't like the job he could while working, keep looking for other better jobs."Remember" a bird at hand is worth more than thousands in the bush.
