2nd Class was mainly patronised by the middle classes - professional people, civil servants, clergymen, owners of small businesses etc. It didn't cost a great deal more than 3rd - around £5, which was a month's wages for a skilled man. So there was a sprinkling of working class people travelling in '2nd Cabin', but most were more careful with their money and opted for 3rd Class, which on the Titanic was pretty good. There was no traditional steerage accommodation on the ship. .
