Because Japan is super polite. You will almost always recieve a thank you upon even the smallest service or purchase, accompanied by an informal bow(dipping of the head). Formal bows are usually reserved for social situations(though exceptions are made for high ticket stores, businesses that specialize in "sabisu", or if you are exceptionally polite/frequent customer)

One thing to note is the jobs that are considered "minimum wage" jobs in the U.S. are not there. It is perfectly acceptable to work at McDs or a convenience store. Wages are higher, work ethic is a staple of Japanese society, there is no social stigma, and the employees function as a team. Thus, there is a much higher level of service.
