"My opinion is that there are labor laws to protect people against this sort of job-hell, and so I have told my mother. But, because I am just her kid and thus can't possibly know anything, my mother just replies that "they are a private company and can do anything they want.""

I don't know about labor laws, but she can always go the "take this job and shove it" route if she is unhappy. Perhaps she stays on because it pays better than other jobs someone with her skill set can get.
