CLOSED SHOP: An employment arrangement, usually written into a collective bargaining agreement, in which a firm is allowed to hire only labor union members. Because this gives a labor union complete control over the labor services supplied to a particular firm, it was one of the earliest methods used by labor unions to monopolized a labor market. However, closed shops were outlawed by the Taft-Hartley Act passed in 1947 and has been largely supplanted by union shops.

EMPLOYMENT: The condition in which a resource (especially labor) is actively engaged in a productive activity usually in exchange for an explicit factor payment (such as wage or salary). This general condition forms the conceptual basis for one of the three categories used by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) when classifying individual's labor force status. Employed persons is the specific category used by the BLS classification procedure. The other two BLS categories are unemployed persons and not in the labor force.

Depository financial institutions that were originally established to assist home owners with low-cost mortgage loans using savings deposits. Savings and loan associations (S&Ls) offer checkable deposits that are part of the M1 monetary aggregate. While S&Ls are not "officially" chartered as banks, similar to other thrift institutions (credit unions and mutual savings banks) they do function comparable to any traditional bank, offering a wide range of deposits, loans, and other financial services.
