What is the Min Wage in Puerto Vallarta Mexico for Hotel Staff?

I recently visited PV. I was told on several occassions that the hotel staff only made $6.00US / day. I don't mean to be naive, I can see the poverty, but I honestly don't think this is true for the working class and they tell tourists this so that we tip more. As a benchmark, you see Gatorade posters everywhere selling for 34,50 pesos. That's $3.50 right? I saw a local restaurant, selling local all you eat meals for $100 pesos. That's $10 right?. Can someone please explain.
