My boss hates me.

So, my new manager doesn't like me.

I was recently hired for a job I've been temping at for the past thirteen months. Yay! As a temp, I worked under two different managers, who both had excellent things to say about my performance. My last manager took a new role in the company, and I was moved to a manager who had made it quite clear during my temp days that he didn't like me. He has since given me a warning about my attendance under the previous managers (which involved major emergency surgery and a hurricane which delayed the start of my son's school). These absences were approved by my previous managers, so I don't think it's his place to call me out on it now. In addition, he's complained about my performance to upper management, where my previous managers praised me to the same people. To make matter more complicated, my wife is a higher up in this company, and my boss may be taking out his feelings towards her on me. I just don't know how to deal with this situation. I honestly feel like he's gunning to get me fired, but I really need this job, and, as far I knew, I was doing a good job at it. How do I deal with a boss with a vendetta?
