While that sucks, did you never discuss the details of the raise? I think you're entitled to ask: pay, hours, whether there will be a commute or not, training. Did you pay for your new training yourself? If you did, that would have been a red flag. Or them dodging a pay inquiry. At least your new title and training would look good on a resume for the future.
$1 an hour raise may not seem like much, but that is an extra $2000 a year assuming you work 40 hour weeks.
"Oh, wow, you went to janitorial school and have tasked yourself with spending an extra four hours each day waxing the floors. That's… you're one hell of an accountant!"
That's kind of how it works in most places. You get promoted, show you are up to the task, then you get the reward. Give it time. Of course it could just be that your company is cheap. But they can't take the training from you, maybe you can use that it get employment somewhere else.
