I am 16 years old, and I would like to get a job working at either an airport, or working at an airline. Are any airlines hiring workers right now? I would also like to work on the ramp at an airport. Is 16 too young for this?

I believe Southwest (and perhaps a few other carriers down there) has an "internship" program for High School students during the summer. Nwcoflyer is correct, though... for steady employment (part-time, for example) many carriers require you to be 18 years old.

If you resided in the LAX area, the admistrative body that runs LAX, known as Los Angeles World Airports, has a very nice internship program whereby students that attend the local high schools, and have an interest in aviation, can get some "real world knowledge". If you're not in the LA area, perhaps your local airport offers a similiar program.
Best of luck to you!!!
