“‘Commerce’ means trade, commerce, transportation, transmission, or communication among the several States or between any State and any place outside thereof.’ Plaintiff’s complaint alleges that Defendant itself has offices in four states and five countries. In addition, PetroMar’s business involves shipping in the oil and maritime industry, and its employees were sent to work on oil vessels. The Court can reasonably infer that this involves work ‘on goods or materials that have been moved in or produced for commerce by any person.’ Accordingly, the Court finds that Plaintiff has satisfied his pleading burden with respect to establishing that PetroMar is an ‘enterprise engaged in commerce.’”
