The best book for this question is: "Seeing Systems" https://www.amazon.com/Seeing-Systems-Unlocking-Mysteries-Or...

It give insights a) on why this happens and b) what scope for action you have (a lot).

ad b) i recommend two sided strategy> continue to do your best work while not caring about it. - and - start "beening open for new oportunities" side project job hunting & networking. it might cost some energy, but either the situation in your job improves and you can keep your job, and if not, you have a head start when your job hunting gets serious.
