    First off, it lists E-4 as the designation for both Specialist Legionnaire and for Lance Sergeant.
    Yes, per the text at the top of the page "The Tomorrow Legion uses an innovative rank structure which enables non-command legionnaires to reach higher levels in the military hierarchy than traditionally possible, choosing a leadership, commission, or warrant path at E-4 (commissions become O-1)."

    This is much like the Corporal and Specialist ranks (both E-4) in the modern United States military; see this link for a basic overview https://work.chron.com/corporal-vs-s...rmy-24479.html

    They are essentially different career paths. The enlisted rank is the same, but the responsibilities and training are different. Upon being promoted to E-4 a Legionnaire must decide whether to become a Specialist, Lance Sergeant, or Ensign.

    Second, does going from E-4 to W-1 result in lower pay? Likewise if you go from W-4 to O-1? That is implied by the way pay is calculated, unless the character also happened to change Rank at the same time they're getting their promotion. (If a PC is a Veteran, with a base pay of 600 a week, then as an E-4 they would make 840 Cr/week, while as a W-1, they would drop down to 660/wk--only slightly more than they would make as a Seasoned E-4!)
    Yes, going the Warrant Officer or Commissioned Officer routes leads to a short-term lower rate of pay—the Legion values their Non-Coms!

The simplest, of course, would be to treat a W- designation as +5, and an O- designation as +10; this would mean that going up the commissioned leadership track results in slightly faster pay increases than becoming a non-commissioned officer, but that seems about right).
    This all works as intended, no adjustments necessary. Think of it as NCOs getting a nice mid-career bonus for choosing to serve in that critical role.
