The Prime Minister's comments encouraging employers to explore a four day working week are being met with a flurry of mixed reactions from the business and tourism sectors.

Jacinda Ardern floated the idea during a visit to Rotorua this week, as a way of encouraging people to holiday more and kickstart domestic travel.

While some say it is out of the question, others say now is the time for considering ideas outside the box.
