Is It Acceptable For Cafe Owners to Take Tips From Servers?

The owners of a Philadelphia cafe think it's OK to confiscate tips meant for servers, and explained their actions as being for the good of the community. They said they were collecting tips in order to help pay for restaurant renovations that would benefit everyone, including customers and employees. The cafe owners added to their defense that they pay their servers above minimum wage to start, and the server who outed the tip pirates said that wage is $7 per hour.
