MURPHY, Circuit Judge. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), 29 U.S.C. § 207(a)(1), requires employers to pay overtime to employees who work more than 40 hours per week. In this case, we consider the kind of evidence employees must present to create a jury question over whether they worked overtime. Quoc Viet bought used copiers for Victor Le and Le’s corporation, Copier Victor, and shipped these copiers to Vietnam for resale. After the parties’ relationship soured, Viet sued Le and Copier Victor alleging that they wrongly failed to pay him overtime. Viet testified that he typically worked 60 hours per week but offered few details to support his estimate. The district court found Viet’s testimony about his average workweek too vague and conclusory to withstand summary judgment. We agree and affirm.

KETHLEDGE, Circuit Judge. For decades the government has tried, on a rolling basis and with varying success, to collect millions of dollars of unpaid taxes from Edward Holland, Jr. Here, the government seeks to seize about $20 million of assets previously held by a partnership created by Holland, on the theory that the partnership’s assets were really Holland’s own. The district court rejected those arguments, and so do we.
