If you worked in a job for three years, then for no explicit reason whatsoever you were fired and another person was hired to take your place (probably at a lower wage), wouldn’t you have rights?

That's logical. (Of course if you are hired on a part-time basis, and you might be fired when the contract expires, though).
When you have right to be kept employed, you also need to be granted the right to stay in Japan. So this is a part of the larger issue;immigration.
