Trying to see something. What would you answer if someone were to pose this question to you? Been thinking about this with the boys recently.

A mask

 

more details: 1hr is a long time to make a mask, so this one would likely be hand stitched to take the full hour and to include time processing and shipping from a 3rd world country to sell in the US for for $7.25.

Off the top of my head and assuming you mean ignoring hand produced items and are talking about mass produced / regular things...

A). packaged food products that require baking / cooking / cooling.. (fun fact, it takes 59 minutes to make a package of Oreos)

B). Anything that requires being cured / cooled (think like epoxy, concrete... either cheap components or mass produced items where you have to control temperature change versus artificially accelerating it)

C). Some commoditized chemicals (where there is a chemical reaction that can’t be rushed, making latex/rubber is an example)

Assuming you mean made and sold in America otherwise it's way too easy. Ok even in America, on the internet, a lot of things sell for less than $7.25 per hour. Translation, transcription, mechanical turks type services, a lot of art out there, majority of Twitch streamers with single digit viewers (if you consider streaming a product), etc. 

Be excellent to each other, and party on, dudes.

uber driver (after all costs and taxes, especially since the driver must also pay for their own vehicle)

soccer ball (80% are made in pakistan)

handmade jewelry and trinkets of common materials made in Thailand and the Philippines, where hourly labor costs $2/hour

Philippine virtual assistant and BPO (business process operations - when you call a help line staffed in India or the Philippines)

Accountants from the Big4 outsourced to India make less than $6/hour

Most farmed produce (if you avg the time spent on each item over the growing, harvesting, packaging & transportation process by the laborers actually doing the work)

a $7 whore
