(If this isn't appropriate to post here, just say where I can post it and I'll post it there. Thanks in advance.)

I'm new to game creation, and want to know what would be best for my game idea. It's going to be an RPG with business sim elements. For example, the player gets paid money after a set number of "days" (pay day mechanic) and they can hire and fire party members.

Is RPG Maker the perfect fit for this idea, or are there other game design languages I could use?

Yes, any of the RPG Makers could be used for this. You could either set up your "day" system via events or use a script or plugin. Same with hiring/firing.

If you know what your doing you can do a lot with events alone.

For plugins, you need to post requests describing the things you want to be able to do, in detail (after checking to see what can be done by eventing). Then people will suggest plugins that might fit your needs, or get close to it.
