Finance

Financial professionals seem to love using a rainbow of colors on their charts and spreadsheets. It is apparently better to be in the black than the red, but they look the same to me. For these reasons, some job listings explicitly disallow colorblind applicants.

Driver

Even though we mostly manage to successfully navigate the challenges inherent in color-biased signals, some countries do not allow colorblind people to drive. As of this writing, colorblind persons cannot get driving licenses in China, and several other countries. Only recently were prohibitions lifted in India for people with mild colorblindness. In the United States, only Massachusetts prohibits licensing colorblind drivers. No Uber or Lyft jobs for them.
