3. Prove that you have majority ownership in such Enterprise or you that you have control over such entity through managerial position.

It is important to explain the intention to hire US local force, so the labor requirements should be part of your plan. 

When writing the plan, remember that your Visa could be extended in two or three years and your projections will be re-evaluated at that time.
