Arnie Nuvo has worked on the loading dock at Continental Flange for years, and is quite content in his blue-collar life. When he suddenly gets promoted to Head of Product Improvement one day, his life is turned upside-down. Unsure of how to deal with his new white-collar coworkers and feeling isolated from his old friends, Arnie and his family must make some big adjustments as they struggle to get used to their new surroundings.Written by

The series producers initially planned to make Arnie's salary following his promotion (which is mentioned in the pilot) $25,000 a year. They eventually decided that this was too affluent by 1970 standards (when minimum wage was $1.30 an hour), and reduced it to $20,000. Assuming 2,000 working hours a year, Arnie's salary would therefore have been the equivalent of $12.50 per hour under their original plan, and the equivalent of $10.00 an hour after it was changed.

A show I remember watching
I read the other comment and wanted to say that I remember watching the show, too.
The name "Herschel Bernardi" has been ingrained in my mind for all these years and I've tried off and on to remember this show that I enjoyed watching. I didn't remember it being a comedy but that's probably why I liked it. I was pretty young when it aired.
I had looked here before and missed it somehow. Today, I was talking about this with a co-worker and decided to try to look it up again.
"Arnie" has to be the show I remember. Bernardi came back to mind a few months ago when I saw a few episodes of "Peter Gunn." That made me start thinking about this show again.
