Well from a "made in USA" stand point or "manufactured/built in USA" which will be in FT. Worth, TX and I reside in Dallas, TX, the minimum wage is $7.25/HR
So technically he was right in his stand point but If other items are manufactured/assembled in other areas besides Texas, then the wages change because of the cost of living.
